She has litigated patents in the biotech, pharmaceutical, chemical and electrical arts before courts at all stages, including the U.S. Supreme Court. She has testified on the state of the Federal Circuit and patent appeals before the United States House of Representatives, Committee on the Judiciary, Subcommittee on Courts, the Internet and Intellectual Property.
